Most recent he was honored as Volunteer of the Year by the YMCA of Metro Atlanta.
The event was held at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
Each year at the sponsored event, the Metro Atlanta YMCA bestows the title of “Volunteer of the Year” to acknowledge the success of volunteers who have made a significant contribution to the mission of one or more of the twenty-plus area YMCA centers and service locations in Atlanta metro.
“When I was contacted about this recognition, I was sure there was some mistake — so many volunteers accomplish so much for so many children through the YMCA. I was very humbled,” said Gokce, who is also a former member of the Brookhaven Commission.
Gokce was recognized for his work to bring YMCA-managed recreational and educational programs to an under-served population in the Cross Keys High School attendance area.
